Arctic char is a close cousin of the salmon, with a much milder and sophisticated flavor. It might be too pricey and hard to find when not in season depending where you live, so feel free to substitute salmon. This is a delicious, light, and satisfying meal.

Directions

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Season arctic char with kosher salt and black pepper. Cook fillets on grill pan skin side up until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip fillets and continue to cook until fish flakes easily with a fork, 3 to 4 minutes more. Pour lemon juice over fish; remove from heat.
  2. Divide salad greens over two plates and arrange mango, strawberries, and pecans on top; season with salt and black pepper. Carefully place an arctic char fillet on each portion and drizzle pan juices and remaining 2 teaspoon olive oil over salads.

Was searching for a recipe for grilled char. This looked easy and healthy so decided to give it a try. As hoped for, it was simple and easy and more importantly, very tasty. The only substantive comment I would make is that the instructions say to start cooking the arctic char with the skin face up. Based on many other recipes I also read before picking this one, all the others started with the skin face down and that is how I prepared it. Another thing: I decided not to drizzle the recommended 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil over the greens after everything was done. I didn't feel it needed it. One last thing: I did not have mango on hand, but the strawberries and roasted pecans were delicious on their own, along with the char. Winner for a quick, easy, healthy and tasty way to prepared grilled arctic char
